    That drawing is like a weird combo of Kirk and Scotty–Kirk's face with Scotty's hair and shirt.

    The melange of memories that thing dredges up is astounding. I won't bore you, but will say that the Star Trek projecting phaser inspires memories of the giant Revell Snap-Tite Tyranosaurus model among other connected things.
